Hi, what are some fish that enjoy very fast flow and cold water, like a river. They have to be compatible with Hillstream loaches and not outgrow the 75 Gallon which is 4ft long. Filtration wise, a canister that does 530G/H and there would also be a powerhead at the opposite side of the tank, the tank with have sand, smooth pebbles, few small Anubias and moss, and some driftwood. I know about danio and mountain minnows as good options but what else? I heard there are some freshwater gobies, what type would work there? And what other fish?

Would I get aggression issues between those and the minnows?

Odessas are very passive towards other species. Males chase females in the A.M. hours. They are very colorful & a pleasure to keep.

Denison Barbs come from swift flowing streams and their temps might also overlap with Hillstream loaches. Most people keeping them are doing so at the upper limit of their preference.
